The end of the road for Katherine Harris?

Will she pull out of her Senate race amid questions about campaign contributions?

Published March 8, 2006 9:00PM (EST)

Be careful what you wish for: Democrats who dream of some public humiliation for Republican Rep. Katherine Harris may be getting what they want just a little too early. Harris, who helped hand the White House to George W. Bush in 2000, has consistently trailed in her bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson in November. Now, faced with questions about campaign contributions arising out of the bribery case against Duke Cunningham, Harris may pull out of the race in time for Republicans to come up with someone a little less polarizing and little more competitive. The National Journal's Hotline says Harris' own campaign staff is urging her to give up, and that we should watch for an announcement "of some sort" from Harris any time now.
